Let me be exactly clear about what health care reform means to you, Obama said at one rally in July 2009. First of all, if youve got health insurance, you like your doctors, you like your plan, you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. Nobody is talking about taking that away from you.
But the president's promise is turning out to be false for millions of Americans who have had their health insurance policies canceled because they don't meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act.
According to health policy expert Bob Laszewski, roughly 16 million Americans will lose their current plans because of Obamacare:

Mayhap you could LIST them all by name.
If I were running for Congress as a Tea Party candidate, my TV ads would be montage of Obama, Pelosi, & Reid quotes just on this subject. This would work in both a primary fight with a GOP-e and in the general against a Demo.
After having so many “moderates” and “conservative Republicans” take that holier than thou glow as they talk down to me about the goodness of Obamacare and how much they care and whatever all I can say to these people is “kiss my ass”.
Just wait until next year when the mandate on large businesses takes effect.
No, it was false from the start, even before the first utterance, when it was but a lie in the mind of its "creator".
Feast on lies, expect food poisoning.
Leftists lie all the time, they require lies to gain power

I concur. Do we really have that many easily conned idiots in the U.S? Why yes we do...
Everyone knows who shoved this debacle down our throats and up our rears! 2014 and 2016
The goal is to sign up 7 million.
So 0bamaCare will be a “success” if 9 million people lose their insurance.
Collectivism: where dumb and evil come together in a rich caramelly fudgy swirl. Yum.
This is now a TRAP!
There are legal cases with Obamacare, which are now before at least 3 different Courts.
I am concerned that any attempt now, by Democrats, to Delay Obamacare will really be used to fix LEGAL problems with the existing law, and to nullify the Court Cases concerning the Federal Exchange authority to give tax credits and impose penalties.
By the time the mandate on large businesses takes effect, I believe it will be so commonplace for employers to find loopholes in the mandate that “employer-paid medical insurance” won’t even exist for most Americans.
This is working EXACTLY as planned: No government plan was intended to work...it was intended to drive out of business private insurance companies, and it is working PERFECTLY.
Watch and see if we don't see a bunch of ads like those in the 2014 midterm elections.
Actually, Republicans need to start repeating Obama's health care promises right now, and just keep drilling it in until the Democrats bust a blood vessel.
Too bad they can’t all be 0bama voters.
A lie, you say?
But the aiding and abetting press repeated that lie, again and again.
The Dems and Obama do not care about the people and whether or not they have healthcare. They think they know best and the only way to have their way is to be in charge.
As Saul Alinski said--it is all about power.
In the early 20th century up thru the 30's Ludwig von Mises was the economic guru--strictly for market driven capitalism. The depression came along and the advent of John Maynard Keynes and his govt. driven economic model suited the progressives and they cheerfully embraced his theory that the govt. could jump start the economy by spending and taking over. Since then, the Keynesian economic model has buried the von Mises model of market driven recovery. Keynesian model fit the meme of the progressives; but von Mises said that in a depression/recession the recovery would be much quicker with his theory.
This ideology of massive govt regulating every aspect of our lives is the modern day version of feudalism, and we are on our way to serfdom if we cannt stop it.
Gee!...Did any of them vote for Obama?
People of the Lie — excellent book; this article puts nobamas name in it.
Thanks for the link. I had not heard of that book. We are told that the love of money is the root of all evil, and we see evidence of it every day.
The people and culture of lies hide behind the word "marketing". Not content to do business with sincerity, they create false images for the purpose of putting money into their pockets. And it is not enough to play Gotcha! games with musical prices and the product shrinkray, or even to otherwise lure passive observers... they will readily obtain and sell any and all information about others' habits, hobbies, health, personality, occupation, buying power, needs, wants, discretions, indiscretions and so forth, in order Zero-in on their marks.
The world has become Surveillance City because way too many people profit from voyeurism. By this craft they have their wealth. Explains why the peculiar people who don't want to watch or be watched, and who can accept the word "no" graciously without compulsion to punish, are vilified and targeted for reprogramming or worse. Discerning, honest people are on to the scam and not only won't they buy, they will warn others.
